Genre of the Month

  • GENRE: a category of artistic composition, as in music or literature, characterized by similarities in form, style, or subject matter.

    Every month, students will learn about a specific genre of music. We will be listening to at least one piece of music of this selected genre at the beginning of each class. Students will learn characteristics of the genre, famous composers, the country or region of origin, and song titles, which will all be displayed on the class bulletin board. When applicable, the genre chosen will reflect a holiday or event celebrated in that month.
